Keyamo apologises as senate resumes screening after initial uproar

The senate has resumed the screening of Festus Keyamo after the former minister tendered an apology to the lawmakers.

It could be recalled that the upper legislative chamber was thrown into chaos following a motion demanding that the screening of Keyamo be suspended.

At the resumed session, Keyamo apologised for ignoring the summons of the committee earlier, adding that the apology is without reservation.
